I shall be writing him. Heaven knows how he finds time to keep that site going - dedication comes to mind. It is a valuable catalog of events and one courageous man's thoughts under adversity.The insurgents are composed of two primary groups. The first is composed of former Baath Party member who long to once again crush their populace for their own personal gain. The second group is inhabited by jihadists whose malignant form of Islam calls for the destruction of anything counter to their backwards ideology. Don?t misunderstand me, I?m not bashing the whole of Islam. I?m referring to a small but virulent subset of the religion that is bent on imposing their draconian will on others. That is the face of our enemy, and you would be a fool to think that leaving that plague unchecked would bring anything except disaster.
I share your love of fine handguns, heading to the range is one of my favorite activities. Be sure to fire off a few rounds for me - we are limited to firing in anger. Thank you for the kind meassage, it is great to hear messages from home. Keep the faith, and we'll keep our heads up.
